The original Utah Territorial Statehouse building still stands.HistoryFillmore, located near the geographic center of the territory, was originally built as the capital of Utah Territory. The Utah Territorial Legislature approved a plan to locate the capital in the Pahvant Valley. On October 28, 1851 Utah governor Brigham Young chose the specific site for Fillmore. Jesse W. Fox that same day surveyed the town.Anson Call was the head of the colonizing company that shortly followed. Besides homes they built a grist mill and a saw mill. The capitol building was begun in 1852.In the following years some disagreements developed with the Native Americans in the area, but Brigham Young sent Dimick B. Huntington to the area and he managed to negotiate a peace. The region was considered as a route, along the 38th parallel, for the transcontinental railroad. Captain John W. Gunnison, leading a military party surveying the region, was attacked by a band of Pahvants (Ute) west of Fillmore. In the resulting October 1853 massacre, Gunnison and seven of his men were killed. During the 1860s two forts, Fort Deseret and Cove Fort were constructed nearby as protection from Indian unrest.Use our United States tour itinerary planning tool to plan your trip to Fillmore and other destinations in United States.
